AbstractThe figures in this table are approximate. The actual power consumption of your household appliances may vary significantly from the figures in this chart. Before you do a final load calculation for your household, we strongly recommend checking the tags and owners manuals for your appliances to get precise figures. Each figure given for Watts used. This is converted to watt-hours by multiplying watts used by hours used. Many items, such as garage door openers, are used much less than 1 hour per day. Our PDF load calculation form will automatically calculate any appliance's Watt-hour consumption according the fraction of hours used per day, down to 0.1 hours. (0.1 hr = 1/10 of an hour = 6 minutes) Items marked (n/a) would normally be replaced by non-electric equivalents in homes using alternative energy systems.
